My sister and I loved every minute of this cruise! We found Magellan to be like a well loved holiday home - not immaculate and glitzy, but comfortable, friendly and with plenty to do. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to an outside ... Read more

Marco Polo What better name could there be to conjure up exploration and adventure. This was my first cruise. I had never really been attracted to the cruising lifestyle. A solo sailor from the west coast of Canada, the idea of ... Read more

We were looking at a 50+ day cruise along the South American east coast but by the time we had made up our minds it was unavailable so our agent suggested this as an alternative. We booked in mid November and the price was very reasonable. ... Read more

I sometime wonder if the reviewers had been on the same ship as myself because I found this cruise to be very enjoyable and took me to those places that I had wished to visit in the past and the programme of visits was perfect. The ship ... Read more

I have read some of the reviews and I wonder if the reviewers travelled on the same ship as myself. This was an excellent cruise visiting some interesting ports. I am not a hardened cruiser and possibly this is the last cruise that I ... Read more

We boarded the boat with some trepidation, given poor previous reviews. The boat is very clean, but given the average age of its clientele it needs to be - we were advised that most passengers were in their mid-seventies this cruise. The ... Read more
